Samsung is planning to announce an ARM-powered tablet running Windows RT --- known as Windows 8 on ARM --- according to Bloomberg
, citing sources familiar with the matter.
There's little to go on besides rumblings that the device will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and that the company expects to launch around the same time as parent operating system Windows 8 is released into the wild --- expected in or around October.
